Nov 18, Ratnapura: The Officer-In-Charge of the Ratnapura Police Training School was shot dead Sunday morning, the police said.

The 57-year-old victim, Chief Inspector Indrasoma Ratnayake was shot when he was traveling to a land owned by him in Elapatha, Ratnapura.

Police spokesman Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Prishantha Jayakody said a suspect was arrested with a firearm from the area where the murder took place. The suspect is believed to be a resident of that area.

The police believe a land dispute may have led to the murder of the veteran police officer.
